SEStran presents its 2020/21 Business Plan, which outlines the plans for the next twelve months to deliver the vision:
The South East of Scotland is a dynamic and growing area which aspires to become one of Northern Europe’s leading economic regions. Essential to this aspiration is the development of a transport system that enables the economy to function effectively, allows all groups in society to share in the region’s success through high quality access to services and opportunities, respects the environment, and contributes to a healthier population.
In 2020/21, SEStran will work across its five established core strategic themes to deliver on its vision.
The business plan will coordinate delivery of travel and transport projects over the next 12 months and work to get more partners “on board” with the proposed key priorities for the South East of Scotland’s transport network. Whether that’s walking, delivering goods, getting on your bus or bike, catching the train or driving your car and sharing your journey with others.
Over the next year, we are aiming to continue our journey towards making the South East of Scotland transport network as efficient, effective and equitable as possible and deliver a sustainable transport vision for the region. To do this SEStran will focus on our existing projects and partners including Transport Scotland, Sustrans, Cycling Scotland. The current focus does not preclude SEStran from exploring new opportunities and SEStran will always welcome discussions with new or returning partners.
